Boston Boxing Promotions has announced another fight to take place on Friday May 31, 2019 at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire as Leomonster, Massachusetts’ Ryan Dibartolomeo returns to take on the pro-debuting Llamar Kelly of Saco, Maine in a four-round welterweight fight.
Dibartolomeo, coming from a mixed martial arts background, made his pro boxing debut back in January in Windham battling to a draw with the undefeated former amateur standout Wilner Mindez (2-0-1, 2 KO’s) in an all-out brawl that left the crowd at the Castleton on its feet wanting more.
He has no intention of leaving this fight to the judges this time.
“I’m going to come forward and let the hands fly! I’m going to press my opponent until he looks for a way out then I will put him away and get my hand raised,” said Dibartolomeo.
“Switching sports from MMA to boxing I was a little unsure about how things would go last time. This time around I know what to expect, I know what I’m getting into and expect to get the finish! This one isn’t going the distance,” he further exclaimed.
Kelly is fulfilling a lifelong dream of turning pro as a boxer following an amateur career that saw him compete mostly in New Hampshire and Maine. He is a well-traveled sparring partner for many welterweight boxers all across New England.
“I’m ready for war on May 31st against a tough fighter,” said Kelly. “I’ll be ready and I sure hope he is too.””
Boston Boxing Promotions has announced another fight for its upcoming show on Friday, May 31, 2019 at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center as Boston’s Julio Perez Campusano will meet Lockport, New York’s Erik Plumeri in a four-round super middleweight fight.
Julio Perez Campusano is quickly becoming one of the most talked about fighters in New England for his habit of participating in slugfests that leave the crowd on their collective feet from bell to bell. The first two fights of his career featured a combined four knockdowns in just five rounds of boxing. In his most recent fight, Campsauno won an all-action split decision over New Jersey’s Darryl Bunting that saw both fighters unload everything but the kitchen sink at one another and amazingly stay upright for the duration. Campusano’s record currently stands at 2-1, with 1 KO.
“I love the fans in Windham, New Hampshire and can’t wait to fight in front of them again. It always feels like home,” said Campusano.
“Everyone can expect a good gentlemanly fight between myself and Erik Plumeri, but then again we are two gentleman who don’t mind mixing it up and trying for a knockout with every punch.”
Plumeri is a well traveled fighter with experience in boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts. He has held regional titles in kickboxing and is well known in boxing circles as a guy who doesn’t mind going out of town for a fight. As recently as last month, he took a fight on short notice in Louisville, Kentucky earning himself a unanimous decision over a hometown fighter with just three days to prepare. Then, earlier this month he lost a razor-thin close decision to undefeated Richie Cantolina in Pittsburgh.
“I have no fear of man, just fear of God,” said Plumeri. “Fighting on another fighter’s home court doesn’t bother me one bit. I always come to fight, and I have no doubt this one is going to be action packed, and I’m looking forward to it.”
Boston Boxing Promotions has announced the first fight to be featured on Friday May 31, 2019 at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire. Springfield, Massachusetts’ undefeated Joshua Orta (3-0, 2 KO’s) will take on Portland, Maine’s Ernesto Ornelas (1-1, 1 KO) in a four-round super featherweight bout.
“It’s one fight at a time for me and right now this fight is everything for me,” said Orta.
“I hope my opponent has a great training camp and is looking to come in as best prepared as he can be just like I will. I’m hungry, I love this and I cannot wait for fight day!”
Orta made his Boston Boxing Promotions debut in Windham in January earning himself a unanimous decision victory over Connecticut’s Danny Morales. It was the first time Orta was forced to go the distance in his young career. He will be stepping up his level of opposition significantly against Maine’s Ernesto Ornelas.
Ornelas is a former nationally rated amateur. Originally from Santa Ana, California where he won multiple Golden Gloves titles, Ornelas now lives in Maine where he offers personal training in boxing, kick-boxing and mixed martial arts. He was a standout wrestler at Springfield Technical Community College and the University of Southern Maine. Aside from two pro boxing matches, Ornelas is also a veteran of a dozen MMA cagefights.
“I’m looking toward to be lacing up my boots and gloves and showing my skills from a lifetime of training and knowledge of the sport of boxing,” said Ornelas.
“I expect Josh to show up with a lot of heart and will, and I plan on countering that with some good ol’ boxing skills.”
Boston Boxing Promotions has announced that professional boxing will return to the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire on Friday, May 31, 2019. Doors will open at 7 pm and the first fight starts at 8 pm.
